Windows Procedure for Running CD-ROM Content from Hard Disk

If you are running Windows, following is a more Windows-specific set of instructions for copying a CD-ROM to your hard disk and then
running its setup program:

General procedure for almost any CD-ROM:

  1. Uninstall the software running from the CD-ROM using Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
  2. Right-click on My Computer and choose explore.
  3. Create and name an empty folder on your hard drive.
  4. Point at, or click once on (depending on your settings) the icon for your CD-ROM drive in the left hand panel of the explorer Window to display the files and folders on the CD. (If you click one too many times, the CD installer will run. If this happens, exit the installer, return to explorer, and click one less time).
  5. Press Ctrl-A to select all of the files and folders.
  6. Drag the selected files and folders to the empty folder you created in step 3. You may need to scroll the left pane to make the destination folder visible.
  7. Open the new folder and double-click on setup.exe to re-install the software from the new location.
